in reply to formatting dates

I would use the regex by reflex, I think the unpack is pretty cool, and for yet more TIMTOWTDI, this is just ammo for those that like to benchmark substr against regexen:
$date = 'yyyymmdd'; substr($date,$_,0) = '-' for(6,4);
Update: stupid typo fixed

[stevieb]: I very often write a base set of unit tests before writing any code. It helps dictate the API, and ensures my earliest of ideas stay on track.
